  1. Apparently, Intel is preparing a special driver for its Grantsdale-G aka i915G-based mainboards that would allow plugging up to 4 monitors to one personal computer without using any special expensive graphics cards, sources close to the Santa Clara, California-based company said.

    According to previously revealed information Intel’s i915G will sport two display outputs itself allowing to use a couple of displays on computers utilizing this core-logic. However, to address growing needs of enterprise and financial communities Intel will allow sporting four monitors per PC when an PEG x16 graphics card with dual-head capability is installed. Keeping in mind that such graphics cards are now very inexpensive, Intel will offer the most cost-effective 4 display support in the industry.

    Doesn't the nForce IGP allow for that allready ?

    Two integrated outputs & an extra Dua Display card on the PCI or AGP slot.

    Those things aren't really meant for 3D anyways ( except the nForce 2 one ). They're mostly for people who needs lots of displays constantly like people looking at stock markets.
